Reports have emerged that the Sudanese government is reneging on its promise to free Meriam Yahia Ibrahim, a 27 year old mother of two and wife to an American citizen, who was sentenced to death for her Christian faith on May 15 this year. Speaking to the BBC Saturday, Under-secretary Abdullahi Alzareg of Sudan’s Foreign Ministry, implicated the government of Sudan held every intention to free Ibrahim for a period of two years to nurse her child before her respective sentences, 100 lashes and death by hanging, would be administered.  Today, however, the government appears to have retracted that promise and is now offering to release Ibrahim pending a successful appeal.   PHOTO: Meriam Ibrahim (left) with her newborn daughter Maya, and Meriam Ibrahim’s husband, Daniel Wani, with their newborn daughter at Omdurman women’s prison in Sudan.
